Coronavirus Statement
 
March 18, 2020
 
Ps 60:11 Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless.
 
This scripture reminds me that as much as we do to try and stop the COVID-19 virus it is useless unless the Lord intervenes. While it is important to take the proper practical measures, it is the Lord’s help we need. Imagine if our world took God’s word as seriously as we are now washing our hands, social distancing and coughing into our elbows. Imagine if we stored up God’s Word like we do toilet paper and hand sanitizer.
 
The Bible says if we seek God first, that He will take care of the rest. I see this COVID-19 virus as that opportunity. We are seeing first-hand how vulnerable the things in the world are, how easily things can fall apart and most importantly how fragile our lives are. This virus has given us an opportunity to reevaluate our lives, to see what we are building our lives on and whom or what we are trusting in.
 
For those who have put their trust in the Lord, you are finding out how valuable that is now. You are experiencing a stability and peace that goes beyond the present circumstances to an Everlasting God who rules and reigns over all of this. For those who have not put their trust in the Lord, I urge you to consider this time as message to you of your need to be right with the Lord, after all, the world and all that is in it is fading away but God’s Word will last forever.
 
As we seek the Lords help we then take practical steps as well. This is where we had to make a tough decision today to move our Sunday and Wednesday services to online only starting immediately. The Board and I will continue to monitor the situation daily and as soon as we possibly can we will resume services back in our building (as well as continue online streaming). Fortunately we have been streaming our services live so it won’t be difficult to continue to do this. All ministries will be on hold for now as well.
 
As we make this move, we do so knowing that it is the Lord’s help we need. I encourage you to make the most of your time and get into the Word, pray, meet with some of your brothers and sisters in the Lord for prayer, Bible study and encouragement. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to draw near to the Lord. We have Bible Studies on our website of most of the books of the entire Bible.
 
The Pastors and leaders will be available for prayer and anything else you may need. You can call the church office or email the church and we will get back to you. If you need help in any other way we will be available. In order to watch our Sunday 10:30 am service and/or Wednesday 7 pm service online you can:
